That's a bunch. And the seller offers additional lots. Interesting. In several decades of mid-intensity cent roll searching I've come across three. Wonder where the seller acquired theirs?

The Chinese counterfeit just about anything. Do you think they might fake these as well?

The mint used to make sets of blank planchets and completed cents in plio for children. I've seen large numbers of these sets over the years at shows. Perhaps (if they are real) they came from those sets?

I have looked through a few cents in my day and have found around 3.

I haven't found one roll hunting (It's a fairly new thing for me, and I rarely hunt through cent rolls), but I did get a blank planchet as a free souvenir from a tour at the Denver mint.

Well some are tarnished a bit, but maybe he had connections somewhere down the line. The prices are way out of line though.

I'm in the "have found exactly one" club (over the course of several decades).

It might be Pareidolia, but on my phone a few of those look like grease-filled dies rather than blank planchets.

Looking back at the image, some of those appear that way to me as well.

How common are they if this seller has a bag full of them? common enough I'd have to guess. I wouldn't be a buyer for this reason, APMEX sells them for $10 each as many as you'd like. with that perspective it's a good deal comparing his listing, but there are many of them out there and likely not worth much more than $1.00 really.

the 2019 explore and discover set from the mint came with a blank planchet in it and $1.91 in coin and a plastic magnifying glass and activity booklet for kids. all for $19.95 and made 50K of them, and I'm sure they've done it at other times also but nothing comes to mind besides this more recent offering.

from that perspective, they aren't really rare at all and not worth more than a buck or so, and that's being generous.

probably someone that spent a career working at a bank and pulling them out as they popped up over decades and switching them out for cents.

As far as Grease Filled Dies, I think it's Pareidolia, on the listing picture which can be blown up, it's scratches and stuff that resemble the memorial or a stain that resembles Lincolns bust but isn't it when its zoomed in on.

Here is one of the sets I'm talking about. I've seen dozens of them at a time. We have given them away to the kids at shows. I can't believe they are uncommon. Have also seen other years - these are the '09 Lincoln log cabin sets.
